Hanukkah, the Festival of Lights, is an eight day holiday celebrating the rededication of the Second Temple in Jerusalem after the successful Maccabean Revolt over the Seleucids (Syrain-Greeks – 2nd century BCE). The prominent ritual is the lighting of the Menorah each night. It is customary to eat foods fried or baked in oil to commemorate the miracle of the oil – the discovery in the Temple of a small flask of one days worth of pure olive oil that lasted eight days. Potato pancakes (latkes), doughnuts (sufganiyot and bimuelos), and dairy foods are popular at this time.
